2001 Ford Focus Rough idle only when in gear, but question is about screws


Asked by Jun 22, 2018 at 03:41 PM about the 2001 Ford Focus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi. Hope someone has some insight. My 2001 ford focus has run rough for a
long time. I changed out the plugs and wires, and have run some gas
additives. I have purchased a replacement for the ignition coil pack, but
found that the screws are stripped, or frozen enough that they will strip. I
have a buddy who can tap them out, but have no idea how I can figure out
where and what screws to buy to replace them? I've been reading up and
now know that we should also look at the PVC hose for a leak, and the dfpe
sensor. I'm a pretty minor DIYer, but ignorant about a lot of car issues. Can
anyone tell me if it makes any difference that I'm feeling the rough idle only
when the car is in gear and warm? I think that info might help a diagnosis,
but haven't found anything on the internet yet that helps. Thanks for looking
and for your car wisdom!!!
